Savonarola: x marks the spot.

Here is the marker on the Piazza della Signoria marking the spot where Savonarola was burned alive. On 23 May 1498, Church and civil authorities condemned, hanged, and burned him and 2 other friars in the main square of Florence.  It gives me chills to walk over the spot.
